What Does Social Engineering Look Like?
Social engineering occurs when children have limited educational opportunities, are homogenized through a narrow curriculum and motivated by fear, rewards and punishments.

What Does Incessant High Stakes Testing Do To Children's Formative Minds?
The process of standardized education and assessing the retention of facts and figures from standardized educational experiences on high stakes standardized tests is not a pleasant process for significant numbers of children. My question is what does this p...

My Letter To The Indiana State Board of Education
Dear Indiana State Board of Education, The roots of cognitive science, the science of mind, brain and learning, have been in existence since Socrates, Plato and Aristotle spoke and wrote on such matters over 2500 years ago.  Research in cognitive science an...

On the Rigor of the Common Core and Fidelity of High Stakes Testing
Touting the CCSS version of standardized education with lots of rigor and fidelity as a cure-all for what ails American public education is a charade!  More and better standardized educational experience (rigor) that will be controlled and measured with hig...

What Does It Mean To Be Educated?
I posit that compelling children to sit in crowded classrooms and prepare them to take high stakes standardized tests utilizing Skinnerian based behaviour modification methodology is not an education. It is instruction and training to prepare for standardiz...

Story
Tagline
Preventing future failures of imagination is an important line of work. That's what I do.
Introduction
There is a lot to tell, but too little time or space to tell it. I am a public education advocate. Learning is not a simple matter of inputs equal outputs. What is happening to the brain during the learning process is just as important as the content that is being considered by the learner. Because the education of the imagination is just as vital as other realms of the cognitive domain, I am an art education advocate. I accept no money from anyone. If you are interested in a picture to advocate for public education, you have my permission to use images from the Education Reform Illustrated blog. On the idea of quality: There is such a thing as quality, and then there are qualities of quality. Art education is science education. Art education is a complex job that overlaps with history, engineering, mathematics, linguistics, biology, psychology, chemistry, anthropology, mythology, philosophy, sociology, cognitive science and semiotics. Semiotics is a field of study I am interested in. Semiotics is a way of thinking about how organisms perceive and interpret information and communicate. In semiotics, anything can be a sign. All organisms interpret signs. Words are signs. Words have powerful meaning. Images are signs. Images have powerful meaning. In this blog, I intend to use words and images to communicate and provide understanding of the crime that has been committed against the American People that is corporate education reform.
Bragging rights
I have spent over 30 years teaching in K-12 classrooms in rural and urban settings with heterogeneous learning groups. I know what I am talking about.
